The truth alone is not enough
I recently encountered a situation. A situation that has no turning back.
After raising a company £millions and continuously offering so much support to them and even waiving tens of thousands of pounds of fees for them.
I was forced to resign.
Unethical. No logic. Emotion driven.
But walking away from that experience, I realised 3 things:
1) The journey in business is never linear
2) Sometimes the truth alone isn’t enough, and that presentation of the truth is just as important as the truth
3) Having a bad boss isn't your fault. Staying with one is
And a realisation that universal principles are more important (truth, fairness, integrity) than anything else. And making a stand for what you believe in, comes from that place. More important than money. More important that positioning. More important than winning.
